Hello I lost my mum just over 14 week ago unexpectedly & I’ve not cope well since today is my birthday & as much as my beautiful family have made it such a good day I’m absolutely heartbroken mums not here to share this day with me! I just feel totally lost & alone not sure where to go from here
I lost my mum 7 and a half months ago very suddenly and I am nowhere near accepting her death or coping with it. It’s my birthday this weekend and I just dont even want anyone to mention it. My first birthday without my mum and i still cant believe it.
I will have to pretend to be having a nice day for my daughter who is 12 and my partner.
My sister messaged me and said she has got me a present and asked if I’m doing anything nice, and all I wanted to say is, no I’m not! Our mum has died. Have you forgotten?
I’m tired of being sad and miserable so, jayne, you are not alone.
Yes I felt exactly the same didn’t want any fuss but have for my two little girls! I know it’s still early days but I just can’t see a way of ever gettin over losin such a big part of my life! Xx
I agree jayne. What happened to your mum? My mum had a massive brain hemorrhage while she was in the recovery room having had a routine operation.
I was on the way to collect her and take her home and when I turned up she was in a coma. We turned her life support off the following day
She had colitis had to have her bowel removed but having had a stroke 12 years prior she has health issues! She made the operation but her recovery was just too much for her she had sepsis & organ failure so unfortunately we had to let her go
Its rubbish isnt it. Still cant believe they have gone.
Sorry jayne x
So many dates cause so much pain. Mother’s Day. Birthdays, Xmas. Etc. A stark reminder they are not here. Sorry for your loss. I lost mum on 26th August last year. I miss her so much she was 70. Just can’t believe I will never see her again. Miss her little face.
so young Jooles

Hi, I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m going through something similar, I lost my mum in January and I’m struggling to cope. It’s seems so unfair and I feel so alone.
You are not alone DWR6989. Come here and chat with people who understand how raw it all feels.
It’s nice to talk to people on here who really understand. Sometimes I feel fine the others I just feel like I want to be with her
